Believe it or not, KUMHOM Tire USA has just made the worlds first perfumed automotive tires made for Honda Accords, Toyota Camrys and Subaru Outbacks.
Spokesman Mark Bouffard says scented jasmine and lavender oil is put directly into the rubber of the tires during manufacturing so the scent lasts as long as your tires do.
Says Bouffard: The scent stays for about 60,000 miles and make your garage smell delicious.
He says the smell persists while you drive, but it isnt overwhelming adding, Youll be burning lavender instead of rubber.
Bouffard speculates the lavender tires could get women more involved with car maintenance, with the smell prompting women to change their own tires.
The company plans to add more aroma-tires for women and also specially scented tires for men.
Bouffard says, The men weve surveyed want their tires to smell like popcorn and hot dogs. Were working on it.
